Fabulous Food

When: Sat., July 25 2015

Last week, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) debuted its latest juried group exhibition, Sustenance: From Palate to Palette. The show features artwork inspired by and/or created using food as a medium. In conjunction with its exhibition, the AAWR is hosting a special discussion with Yael Raviv, director of Umami: Food and Art Festival. Umami is a nonprofit, biennale event in New York City founded in 2008. The festival showcases cross-disciplinary ideas that foster a dialogue about the role of art and food in our society. Dr. Raviv’s presentation will discuss past projects and explore the role food can play in artwork that's grounded in everyday life and materials. She earned her PhD from the Department of Performance Studies at NYU in 2002. Art, Food and Umami is free thanks to a grant from the George Gund Foundation. (Usmani)
